Calling the new Bentley Brooklands the world’s most exclusive coupe, Bentley plans to limit the vehicle’s production to only 550 units for the model’s entire lifetime. Well, even that number looks somewhat optimistic taking into consideration the vehicle’s street price of more than $340,000.
Despite 2008 Bentley Brooklands‘ deliberate retro styling, the coupe features one of the most advanced and powerful engines in its class.
The new 6.75-liter twin-turbocharged V8 unit mated to six-speed gearbox, sports impressive 530bhp and mind-numbing 775 lb-ft (1050 Nm) of torque.
The vehicle is not only very powerful, it’s larger than its predecessor — Bentley Continental R coupe — giving more leg, knee and headroom for the rear passengers.
